HR 4789: The Public Option Act

It's coming down to crunch time for decent healthcare reform. HR 4789 is is The Public Option Act Most of us understand and want the public option so let your Congress Critter know how you feel if he/she isn't one of the 66 (at last count) representatives who support and are sponsoring this bill. If you're congressman/woman isn't supporting it, you can call (202) 324-2132 and ask for his/her office. Or visit his/her website for contact information.

Rep. Dennis "the Menace" Kucinich Cleveland is on board and he's gone on record as saying that he won't support any legislation without a public option. The one thing we know in Ohio is that Dennis has the courage of his convictions. We also know that he grew up the hard way and understands how difficult can be. and He's been supporter of the public option for many years. The link is to his Q&A discussion on health care at Georgetown University. Or you can see it as a 3 part series on YouTube. He makes sense. I think he clarified 'public option' very well!!!!

It's time for us to take a stand. Make the call.

Happy Blogging!!!!!!



  1. I do want the public option, but right now I just want HEALTH CARE REFORM period. I can't believe we might not get any reform. Sad...sad...sad...

  2. Kay: It really is sad!! I thought Dennis' conversation at Georgetown provided a rational perspective on the public option.
